Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake End Relationship We Thought Was Over Already

There's a reason that we didn't include Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake in our October list of "Celebrity Couples We Still Believe In": Not only did we not particularly believe in them, but also, it didn't really ever seem like they were a couple. Biel moved out of Timberlake's digs in Tribeca eons ago. In fact, back in 2009 we wrote a post documenting the slow public dissolution of their relationship, which had begun years before that. So when People reported today that the couple is officially over, it sort of felt like the time Phil Collins recently announced he was quitting making music. Sure, we'd had some good times ("Sussudio," anyone?), but who knew that was still going on all this time? Anyway, this is pretty much good news for everyone. Womankind can now openly pursue the Hollywood guy who sang "Sexy Back," and mankind can now openly appreciate the woman with Hollywood's sexiest back.

Meanwhile, somewhere out there, Cameron Diaz is cackling so hard she's snorting Muscle Milk.
